    I am from Jhb, South Africa. I do spinning about 4 times a week as I go to work early and only get home 12 hrs later. Weekends I do a race or a short distance. I did the 94.7 and Argus twice.

    I'm a mechanical engineer..
    I love bikes..
    And had designed and built prototypes in the past..

    My newest project is a 'redefined geometry' for road.. don't ask me, its confidential.

    past projects include recumbent bikes, tandems, etc.

    So if you need someone crazy enough to experiment w/ bike setups.. I would be happy to help.

    Another Melbournite here! 27yo male and I live in Melbourne but am part of the Geelong Mountain Bike Club (see www.gmbc.com.au - shameless plug for their website I helped set up ;)).

    Funnily enough I once stayed well clear of roads and bike paths to any extent possible but now I find myself on the road more and more. Besides, it is impossible to avoid commuting to work. My legs will remain unshaven however!

    ah yes, but shaven legs - at least in my experience - is certainly not the norm in mtb. Probably more like 50/50.

    So the dork list should be split in to one for road and one for mtb - helmet mirrors dont apply, shaved legs and camelbaks are certainly not dorkisms, although some definately apply to both!
